At Sharrow Bay Country House, prepare to be stunned by Lake Ullswater, the legendary ribbon of blue that cuts through the emerald fells of Cumbria - beloved home of sailors, poets, and dreamers.

Breathtaking views, Michelin-rated cuisine, and an overall experience that time forgot.
Sharrow Bay Country House is a stately luxury hotel in the old English tradition - one that has blossomed rapidly from a humble four-bedroom inn into one of the Lake District's most sought-after hideaways.

Opened in 1949, Sharrow Bay has prospered largely due to a singular advantage over other properties - a view that will knock the wind out of you. Time and again, guests bubble with delight over the sweet melancholy of Lake Ullswater, and spend most of their time taking it all in.

Sharrow Bay is a wanderer's delight, with 12 acres of woodland and half a mile of lakefront. The main garden is the perfect place to bring a book and lose track of time for an afternoon. A boathouse and jetty are also nearby, for those who want to get out on the lake's still waters.

This country house hotel also offers hearty English fare and Michelin-starred cuisine in its dining hall. The Sharrow Breakfast, which includes black pudding, bacon, sausage, and tomatoes, is a perennial favorite.

Sharrow Bay Country House is situated on the edge of Lake Ullswater, considered by many to be one of the most picturesque lakes in mountainous Northwest England. Fairly secluded, it is a winding, hour-long drive from Cumbria's Carlisle Airport. It is highly recommended you get detailed directions from the hotel staff before starting out.
